Investing in the development of your managers is a scalable way to maximize employee engagement, growth, and retention – all while developing your future leadership bench strength.

Are your managers set up for success?

Organizations typically spend 30%+ of their budget on their workforce, so it is critical to find ways to get a strong return on your workforce investments. For most organizations, managers (aka your people leaders), make up a key component of those workforce investments. Great people leaders can plan, organize, inspire and coach, and direct resources to achieve specific goals, and do so while interacting with their employees as well as the many stakeholders they serve. Because they have an impact on so many, good to bad, investing in leadership development for these managers is important.

Clients rely on the Churchill Leadership Group to create customized manager effectiveness learning solutions. We partner with you to understand where you are, prioritize the development needs of your managers and deliver a proven learning journey that gets results. When your managers grow, everyone benefits.

More Data

When Google experimented with working without managers, employees were left without guidance on their most basic needs. Google employees concluded that the quality of their manager is more important than their compensation.

  • Employee engagement directly affects retention, productivity, and performance and costs the US $390Bn/yr
  • But, 70% of talent is NOT engaged. Employees lack passion for their work and fail to contribute the extra effort you need from them.
  • Managers influence 70%* of engagement. However, only 35% of managers are engaged - compounding the problem!


Most ineffective managers exist due to a lack of development. Too many have not received any training let alone advanced development.  Contact us to learn more about our customized learning journeys for your people leaders.
